Board Members


The Douglas County Education Foundation is governed by a group of volunteer board members  who are diligent in both operating the organization and administering its funds. The board leads by example - consistently having 100% participation in giving and/or soliciting donations. We are grateful for these community leaders who give generously of their time, talent, and treasures.
